    Thanks for the demo. That’s awesome. I’ve dabbled with trying to compensate with a little pressure and I’ve thought about getting a tremsetter but now that I’ve seen compensation demonstrated so seamlessly, the bar has been set and I’m going back to the woodshed to develop that muscle memory.

    I've found that I really like using a Hipshot Tremsetter on my two point trems (Floyds included). I used to almost always rest my hand on the bridge and with the larger floyd style bridges it would cause a slight warble that would deive me nuts. I originally started using the Tremsetters to stop that warble and always bring the bridge back to "zero" center after using the wiggle stick. Then I also figured out that if I tighten the spring on it I can stabilize the bridge enough to play in drop D and even use either an EVH D-Tuna or a Tone Vise Pitch Shifter; even with the bridge floating.
    Granted, there is a give with that take because you do lose the smooth feathery action but the use os still there when you want it. You just need practice with it to learn to adjust to it. We all know that takes time like any other part of playing.

    I'm a fumble fingered old man. LOL

    It's pretty easy once you get it ingrained. Then you just do it without thinking. I got better at it once I ditched the pick though.
